The health of the eye seems to demand a horizon. We are never tired, so long as we can see far enough.~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Welcome to Blooming Friday! This week’s theme is Horizon and these two pictures depict a typical morning/day scene in and around our city around this time of the year. The horizon is shrouded in mist and is hazy. It’s not possible to see what lies beyond a certain point. This picture was taken from one of the many hills dotting the cityscape. This is Nilachal Hill and is home to one of Assam’s most famous landmarks, the Kamakhya Temple. From the hill one can get a bird’s eye view of our city on the banks of the river Brahmaputra.
I shot this scene from the train in January this year just as its path left the suburbs and led to the rural and the pastoral. The harvest was over, the rice stalks, brown. Remains of a sudden winter shower reflected the cloudy sky. In the distant horizon, only the faint outline of the hills could be seen.
